I am trying to knit the baby shorts from Debbis Bliss' Essential Baby.
I have casted on 72 and did 10 rows of 1x1 rib. Now I am supposed to: k6, turn, sl 1, p to end , then the next row is k12, turn, sl 1, p to end, then k18, turn, sl 1, p to end, and so on (so, I am essentially working short rows, I guess, as I am shaping the back of the shorts). Well, if I follow these instructions, I get big weird gaps in my work where I turned. I know how to knit, turn my work, slip stitches and purl, but its just not coming out right. I feel like the pattern is missing something or implying something that I am not catching....Am I supposed to be wrapping and turning? If I do I will throw off the stitch count. Anyone dealt with this before?
